Honor 8A, data sheet of characteristics and price

24 mayo, 2021

Honor’s family grows. Or maybe we should say the triplets. At the beginning of the year the company launched the modest Honor Play 8A in China and a few months later a fingerprint reader grew on its back and changed its name in Russia: there it would be the Honor 8A Pro. The story does not end there, but rather he is born new Honor 8A, to dry.

This new cheap mobile has a lot in common with its siblings. Its design and specifications remain tight, as does its price. It is almost identical to the Honor 8A Pro that we met at the beginning of the month, although it is now offered with more storage and RAM configurations.

Honor’s new entry range


As its name indicates – or rather, its number – the Honor 8A will be the natural successor to the previous Honor 7A. It has rained a lot since then, and the changes are evident on all fronts. For starters, the screen, which now it’s 6 inches, with HD resolution, and is crowned with a drop-shaped notch.

In said notch a 8 megapixel front camera with f / 2.0 aperture that does the double function of allowing you to unlock the terminal with facial recognition. The rear camera for its part is 13 megapixels, with aperture f / 1.8. They are the same megapixels of the previous generation, although the aperture has improved.


The processor, how could it be otherwise, is provided by MediaTek. It is a Helio P35 (eight cores up to 2.3GHz), which this time comes with an amount of memory available in two quantities: 2 or 3 GB of RAM. The Honor 8A Pro that was presented in Russia was only sold in the larger version, 3 GB. With internal memory, three-quarters of the same: 32GB or 64GB.

Honor 7A, analysis: stretching screen and cutting performance

The Honor 8A maintains the fingerprint reader back, where a monotone Google Pixel design is now applied, although the separation is horizontal instead of vertical. As for the battery, it has a capacity of 3,020 mAh, without specifying any type of fast charge.
